When Airplane mode is enabled, all iPhone radios should be disabled for placing and receiving calls, the same for SMS/MMS, internet access via the cellular network, wi-fi access, bluetooth access, and GPS reception.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 10, 2010 10:44 PM (in response to jjwch)No, calls go directly to VM and text aren't delivered. If you are receiving calls/messages, your phone is NOT in Airplane Mode. You need to troubleshoot your phone - Restart, Reset, Restore.MacPro4,1 8 Core, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone 4, iOS 4.X, iPad 3G 64GB iOS 3.2.2, AirPort Extreme, 160GB iPod
Currently Being ModeratedDec 14, 2010 9:34 AM (in response to jjwch)I experienced this behavior today in Amsterdam just before the take off. I've screenshots about this event with the call and Airplane mode icon.
Moreover I received two calls after each other.iPhone 3G, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedJan 19, 2011 4:35 PM (in response to nyaria)Hey, I just experienced the same! Totally awkward.
I'm currently travelling abroad so I put my iPhone 4 in airplane mode since I landed, 3 days ago. Today I got an SMS out of the blue during a meeting, while the iphone was clearly in airplane mode (took a screenshot to prove). I know this alert was sent exactly on Monday (and today is Wednesday), so airplane mode worked effectively for the past two days but seems it "forgot" the config after a while.
I rebooted the phone while still in airplane mode, and despite showing the plane indicator I was still able to receive calls normally.
I then turned off the Airplane, let it connect to the network (which it connected in half a second, didn't even show the usual "Searching..." which means it was really connected the whole time). After I turned the Airplane Mode on again.. voialà, now it seems to be really off the grid..
So, turning on/off your device doesn't matter much. You have to turn off and then on again the Airplane Mode switch..
Has anyone else experienced something similar?Windows 7

In Canada last week... I'm a pilot. Believe me that I travel international often and I know about excessive roaming and data charges, so I never forget to airplane mode my phone.
Day 2 in Canada, I get 2 texts in a row, followed by a phone call.
It now even happens in the states. In airplane mode I can receive/send texts and calls.
Not sure why this is happening... but it can get expensive.

The iOS 5 Jailbreak, as well as the iOS 5 Semi-Tether Jailbreak both render airplane mode unusable. I'm going to reccomend you start by restoring, or just shut down your phone when flying.

@ apdspider. Interesting bug that apple has to definitely look into. Finally gives some credit as to why flight attendants say to literally turn off fones... and that airplane mode doesn't count. As a pilot, do you have any opinions on that?

As a pilot... yes, I've never seen interference or experiences it with iPhones... Blackberries, yes. I've heard static interference with my headset but only when the blackberry was uploading or downloading data and it had to be really close to my headset. Other then that, I never had issues.
Now back to the original issue of airplane mode not working on a jailbroken iPhone... I just want to make sure everyone having this problem has there phones jailbroken. No one is having an issue with a non-jailbroken iphone, right?
I guess I'll restore my iphone... although i have yet to receive a bill for roaming outside the USA on my jailbroken iphone in airplane mode. Anyone?

I'm traveling right now in Argentina and didn't want a bunch of charges so i've kept my phone on airplane mode and this morning I wake up to a text message. My phone has never been jailbroken. I hope I don't get charged for a lot of data usage. I'm really worried about this now.

I wonder if this explains what people are experiencing. From wikipedia:
iMessage allows users to send texts, photos, videos, contact information, and group messages over WiFi or 3G to other iOS5 users, thus providing an alternative to standard SMS messaging for all users with devices running iOS 5.
